There is another NYT article claiming that the contact numbers of all the schools and universities provided are now dead. An ex employee of Axact said that his job was to sell the degrees of Nickson and Harrow universities. The reporter claimed that they tried to contact over 111 websites related to the company but all attempts were futile.

The story also reported that there is strong evidence that Axact has contacts in the US. Two bank accounts in Florida have been linked to the company so far. As per the 22 year old ex employee Sikandar Riaz, there are over 20 companies created by Axact to look after its finances.

Sikandar, a communications student claimed that while being employed at the Islamabad head office, he was given the job of selling Nickson and Harrow university degrees. His deadline was providing the applicants with degrees in just 15 days.

Ahmed, another ex employee who worked in the company for three years said that he feels ashamed of his work at Axact. He sold fake degrees of Belford, Lorenz and Adison universities. He claimed that Axact was making over 100,000$ a day back in 2012. He said that majority of the applicants were young individuals who aspired to join the US military.
